This scholarship is offered annually to registered beneficiaries of UTC who are currently enrolled in an educational institution.

These scholarships are available for primary, secondary or tertiary level applicants, as we continue to support descendants of Uenuku, Tamakana and Tamahaki in gaining higher levels of participation and achievement in education which in turn, helps build capacity to support whānau, hapū and iwi development.

  • Proven academic merit
  • Excellent attendance record
  • A commitment to tikanga Māori and te reo Māori
  • A commitment to community

The following was an open letter submitted to Government concerning the Therapeutic Products Bill:

We strongly urge the New Zealand Government to pause proceeding with the Therapeutic Products Bill and to constructively consult and engage with your Te Tiriti o Waitangi partners, the various organisations affected, and their respective representatives before proceeding to the second and third readings of the Bill.

Following an analysis of the 16,645 submissions to the Health Select Committee, many submitters do not object to replacing the Medicines Act 1981 and the Dietary Supplements Regulations 1985. A further analysis of the submissions reveals however, that many if not all submissions, have serious concerns about how the omnibus Bill has been drafted and what the consequences will be for tangata whenua and New Zealanders.

We welcome the opportunity to work with our lawmakers in a forum that resolves the issues identified from the submissions made about the Therapeutic Products Bill, so that the proposed law works for all now and into the future.
